What Kind Of Character Is Alhaitham?

Alhaitham Is An On-Field Main DPS


Alhaitham is an easy to use dendro character that needs to stay on-field to deal damage. He has an amazing scaling with Elemental Mastery and is able to produce massive single target and AoE Damage through his Mirrors and Elemental Burst.

Strengths & Weakness Of Alhaitham

- Is able to provide consistent Dendro DMG allowing him to be in various team.
- Scales well from Elemental Mastery making him simple to build.
- Works amazing with the 3 Star sword, Harbinger of Dawn (provided you have a shield character).
- Can deal strong AoE or Single Target attacks with Chisel Mirror effects.
- Pretty expensive to build since all Talents needs to be leveled up.
- Pretty high level play-style and requires management of Mirrors and rotation.
 ↳ Needs getting used to for consistency.
- Charged Attack is needed for normal combo and its animation is pretty long so if not timed well, you might end up tanking enemy's attacks.
- Low Resistance and its combos are easily disturbed
 ↳ Using shields or Xingqiu's Blades helps a lot.

Alhaitham needs a lot of investment on Elemental Mastery because most of his damage comes from reactions. His Passive also gives bonus DMG based on Elemental Mastery. To maximize Mysteries Laid Bare, you need 1000 Elemental Mastery but it is okay not to maximize it. Since you are mainly going to use Alhaitham in reaction comps, it is recommended to reach at least 500 Elemental Mastery.

Balance Elemental Mastery and CRIT Stats

Reactions and CRIT Status are important damage source for Alhaitham. ATK does not matter much but they are a great bonus. Focus on reaching close or over 300 Elemental Mastery.

Deepwood VS Gilded Dreams

When choosing between Deepwood and Gilded Dreams, think of the comp that you are using. Deepwood Memories is mostly there for the Dendro Res effect so if you have another character that can equip Deepwood Memories, it is better to equip Alhaitham with Gilded Dreams and the support with Deepwood Memories. This will give you more damage.

Uses Of Alhaitham's Elemental Skill

Teleports You To The Marked Location

Elemental Skill

Using the Elemental Skill of Alhaitham teleports you to the aimed location and deals an AoE Dendro DMG at the location.

Gains Chisel Mirror & Dendro Infusion

After using Elemental Skill, Alhaitham will gain Dendro Infusion that cannot be overridden and a ▼Chisel Mirror.

Scales From Both ATK & Elemental Mastery

The DMG of the Elemental Skill of Alhaitham double scales from its ATK and Elemental Mastery. Elemental Mastery is more valuable however since it also affects the rest of the Kit of Alhaitham.

Uses Of Alhaitham's Elemental Burst

Deals AoE DMG In Front Of Alhaitham

The Elemental Burst of Alhaitham deals multiple hits of Dendro DMG Bonus to the enemies. The number of hits is dependent on the number of Chisel Mirror that Alhaitham possesses during the activation. The damage from this both scales from EM and ATK.

Generate Chisel Mirror Depending On The Number Of Mirrors During Activation

During ActivationAfter Burst

Elemental Burst can also be a way to gether Chisel Mirror but it is generally not recommended because it has a fairly high cost of 70 Energy.

You Might Lose Your Infusion When Using Elemental Burst

Elemental Burst will consume the Mirrors and summons them again depending on the number that you currently have during activation. If you have 3 Chisel Mirrors, activating Elemental Burst will make you lose infusion. It is recommended to unleash Elemental Burst when you have 2 Chisel Mirror or as a finisher before you switch to your supports.

What Is Chisel-Light Mirror?

Elemental Burst

Gives Infusion To Alhaitham

If you have a Chisel-Light Mirror Stack, all of Alhaitham's Attack will be infused by Dendro. This cannot be overridden by other elements or skills like Candace's Burst or Chongyun's Elemental Skill.

Provides Additional Dendro Attack Based On Amount Of Stacks Obtained

Depending on the stacks of Chisel- Light Mirror that you have, an AoE Skill will be unleashed with your attack. This will be the main source of AoE Damage from Alhaitham

Use Elemental Skill & Charged Attacks To Gain Stacks

Elemental Skill - Gain 1 if you have a stack
- Gain 2 if you do not have a stack.
Plunge / Charge Attack - Gain 1 when opponents are hit. (Has a 12 second cooldown).

You can gain Chisel-Light Mirror Stacks by using Elemental Skill. You can also obtain it every 12 seconds through Charged and Plunging Attack if you have the "Four-Causal Correction" passive unlocked.

How To Keep 3 Chisel Mirrors?

Knowing how to consistently get 3 Chisel Mirror is crucial to the damage of Alhaitham. The sword rain of Dendro can easily deal multiple powerful hits.

Start Combos With Elemental Skill → Plunge Or Charged Attack

If you have 0 Stack of Chisel Mirror, using Elemental Skill will give you 2 instead of 1. You can continue the combo with Charged Attack to get 3 Chisel Mirrors. To save stamina, you can also aim the Elemental Skill a little higher so you can deal plunge attack completing the combo that gives you 3 Mirrors quickly.

Use Elemental Burst When You Have 1 Chisel Mirror Stack Left → Charged Attack

Using Alhaitham's Ultimate while there is 1 Chisel Mirror Stack left will give 2 Stacks add a Charged Attack to keep 3 Mirrors. It is easier to get 3 Mirrors by activating Elemental Burst when you have no stacks but it makes the damage from Ultimate itself weak.

it says bennet can work as a healer but i strongly disagree with that, Alhaitham will just burn himself to death faster than bennet could ever heal.

Wrong rotation .
Correct - " Q < NA ( 4 sec) < E <NA( 4 sec ) < CA < NA till lose 1 or 2 mirror then swap to supports. Repeat

Anonymous 24

I don't think I'll be building him he looks like he really requires a 5 star limited which I only have skyward blade. Not a very free to play friendly character but pretty cool playstyle. Makes exploration pretty easy too.

Anonymous 23


he scales better with EM.

Anonymous 22

As an Ahaitham main, I believe EM has been over-rated, while ATK has been under-rated. IMO, EM is meant to be bonus damage... like HP for Ayato. Critical and ATK still provide the best output.
